DNA ties Brooklyn man to Ridgewood robbery: DA

RIDGEWOOD — Police caught up with a Brooklyn man accused of robbing a Ridgewood home after investigators matched his DNA to a juice carton he left in the house, the Queens district attorney said.

Ramon Colon, 31, allegedly broke into the house on Onderdonk Avenue last June and stole electronic items, including a hard drive, a Sony DVD player, a Sony PlayStation, a cable box and DVDs, the DA said.

He left a Tropicana apple juice box in the house, the DA said.

Colon was charged with burglary and criminal trespass, the DA said.
